21  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Being Cheeky @ the WalMart Fabric Counter on: August 14, 2004 11:39:32 AM
When you get a not so friendly fabric cutter....it totally helps to either offer to fold it yourself...or just take it and fold it while they are scanning the bolt end.  They are often quite shocked.....and will probably appreciate it especially if there is a line and no back up in site!

I was at WalMart after hours once and found something I really wanted cut.  I found someone in an entirely different department that came over and "figured it out".  Shocking!...or maybe I am still adapting to my new small town life?
22  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: using oil paints and water to make stationary . . . on: July 15, 2004 08:47:52 PM
I am assuming that you were using the linseed oil to dilute the oil paint?  I would try using liquin.  But it could just be the oil in the oil paint the is being absorbed by the paper in the drying process?  You could work on smaller pieces of cardstock that are primed with an acrylic paint.....do your water and oil paint effect on that and then double stick tape it to the front of the card?

(You wouldn't have to use gesso to prime the paper....you could use a color of acrylic paint that would complement or even contrast the actually card.)

GOOD LUCK...post pics!

You can buy vinyl by the yard at WalMart.  They have a few different weights/thicknesses of it.

25  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need help choosing a serger! on: July 14, 2004 09:24:02 PM
I have a Bernina Bernette 334DS and I love it!  I have never had any problems....absolutely no complaints.

(I even had it sitting on my basement floor once when the hose that drains the water from the washing machine into the sink fell out and the serger was left in a puddle of water and it didn't effect it at all....whew.)

26  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Peace Quilt Square on: July 08, 2004 04:53:08 PM
Your square is super cute!  I would not put the window on....I think it's a bit too much and the depth completely changes.
27  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Leather & Suede on: June 24, 2004 03:49:02 PM
I would look into getting a needle for your machine that is specifically for sewing leather.  A Teflon presser foot would probably help you out as well.  Check eBay auctions for scrap...I have seen some good deals on a "grab bag" of leather/suede scraps.
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do with a vintage scarf? on: June 24, 2004 03:43:07 PM
I once had a skirt I bought at Urban Outfitters that was made of 2 vintage scarves.  The were just sewn up the sides and a drawstrin waist was added.  It was super cute beacuse the front and back were different and you could have a lot of fun finding another scarf to contrast or complement the scarf you currently have.  The only problem is that often vintage scarves are a bit fragile so you would want to test the weave (I guess?) so that when it's sewn together...the sewing doesn't make it weak and it just rips apart next to the seam.  (I really hope this made sense!)

Good Luck.
